Let’s talk baking. It is no secret that it is possible to bake a small cake in a mug with your microwave, college students have been doing so in a desperate attempt to satisfy their sweet tooth for years. However, now it is possible to bake a full-sized cake in a microwave oven.
This new concept opens up a world of possibilities for clean and easy baking. To successfully make your cake and eat it too, you will need a microwave oven with convection cooking capabilities, such as the Sharp SMC1585BB model Black Stainless Steel Microwave , in order to properly bake the cake.
Since cake is a staple in every household, we believe it is the perfect addition to breakfast, lunch, or dinner. There is truly never a wrong time to enjoy a piece of cake.
One important step to successfully baking a microwave cake is to make sure that the container you will bake the cake in is microwave safe. We recommend using a good quality microwave safe container, thick glassware, or Tupperware. It is important to remember that you cannot use a metal tin or pan during this baking process as it will cause arching in your convection microwave .
